Angelo Bonati Looks Back On 21 Years Leading Panerai

Angelo Bonati Looks Back On 21 Years Leading Panerai

Postby Racer-X » April 12th 2018, 6:48pm

by Joe Thompson "Last week, Angelo Bonati said arrivederci to Panerai after 21 years with the firm, 18 of them as the CEO.

Bonati was head of sales of Cartier in Italy in 1997 when Richemont Chairman Johann Rupert selected him as Panerai's first sales director. Rupert's Vendôme Luxury Group (now called the Richemont Group) had just acquired the watch and instruments division of Officine Panerai, the small, obscure Florence-based watchmaker and former supplier of timing instruments to the Italian Navy.

Bonati was the first Panerai employee of the Vendôme/Richemont era. He became CEO of the brand in 2000. On April 1 of this year, he retired, handing over the Panerai reins to Jean-Marc Pontroué, formerly CEO of Roger Dubuis."

He looks like Don Francesco in The Godfather, Part II.
I checked you out, and I now want you to take the journey to lick my taint. It's small, but vast.
